These resources have been developed in line with the Pearson Scheme of Work. The key feature involves re-visiting previously taught topics in the context of the current topic, thus developing mathematical fluency and lessening the need for last ditch revision. Fully worked, sequential examples run throughout each resource. Ideal for non-specialists as well as full blown mathematicians.

Form Time Mathematics/ Maths starters

(2)
This is a resource that I developed and used successfully last year. Form Time 1 - standard form, vectors, expanding two brackets, Venn diagrams Form Time 2 - solving linear equations, recurring decimal, multiplying & dividing using standard form, Real life long multiplication Form Time 3 - Indices (factional and negative), Real life division, nth term and standard form These form time topics then repeat (using different questions but the same topics) in the same order up until 'Form Time 21'.
16.1d - Expanding Double Brackets Relay - Problem Solving

16.1d - Expanding Double Brackets Relay - Problem Solving

(0)
This a relay activity containing 20 questions (of increasing difficulty) . The questions start off with expanding over a single bracket and work the way up to expanding double brackets in a problem solving context. There are also revision questions based upon previously taught topics scattered throughout the resource. Are you a teacher who wants all of their lessons planned for them? Are you a head of maths who has to set a lot of cover work? Are you a senior leader who struggles to ensure consistency of teaching quality within you maths department? Do you have a lot of none specialists who will naturally have limitations in their mathematical knowledge? Are you a teacher who craves structure and full course content? If you answered yes to any of these then these resources are the ones for you. The lesson contains fully worked examples, differentiated questions and the application of the topic in a different context whilst also taking every opportunity to incorporate previously taught topics to consolidate the student's knowledge. Each lesson has been developed by a colleague who has successfully planned resources for his department of 10 where he was the only maths specialist! Within the space of three years he led the department to 81% A* - C (from 34%) with 79% (from 32%) expected progress. This has been maintained for the subsequent three years within a school containing 55% PP with students being significantly below the national average for ability on entry.
